Codes and Frequencies
For all sample adults, RXTAKEREG indicates if the respondent takes any medicine on a regular basis for any health problem or condition.
In 2008, this variable was part of the Sample Adult Balance Supplement. Affirmative responses who also reported a balance or dizziness problem or had any symptoms of problems in the last twelve months (BALDIZYR) were then asked if any of the medicine caused the dizziness or balance problem to get worse (BALRXPROB).
For a further description of the Supplement and a list of topics included in it, see BALDIZYR.
